Filmmaker Shirish Kunder indirectly took down on an analogy used by Author Chetan Bhagat relating to the newly selected Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on the day he took oath, in a series of tweets and said: “Hoping a goon will stop rioting once he’s allowed to rule is like expecting a rapist to stop raping once he’s allowed to rape.”
Kunder’s tweets may have been in response to novelist and writer Chetan Bhagat’s statement which he made after announcement of Yogi Adityanath’s name for the UP CM post.
Chetan Bhagat earlier tweeted: “#YogiAdityanath as UP CM when he was declared CM face on Monday. He tweeted , Because when you make the naughtiest guy in class the class monitor, he behaves the best.” He also received a lot of flak from people on social media.
#YogiAdityanath as UP CM. Because when you make the naughtiest guy in class the class monitor, he behaves the best.

After which Shirish tweeted without naming Chetan Bhagat
Going by the logic of making a goon as CM so that he behaves, Dawood can be CBI Director. And Mallya – RBI Governor.— Shirish Kunder (@ShirishKunder) March 21, 2017
In another Tweet, Kunder said that going by that logic, Dawood Ibrahim could be made the Director of CBI and Vijay Mallya RBI Governor. Earlier, Kunder made it to the news when he gave a fitting reply to someone who asked about his children’s religion on Twitter.
Hoping a goon will stop rioting once he’s allowed to rule is like expecting a rapist to stop raping once he’s allowed to rape.
